March is just around the corner, which means it’s time to gear up for the 2024 college basketball tournament! Whether you’re a diehard fan with a scientific method for filling out your bracket or a spectator who loves the thrill of competition, the tournament offers something for everyone to get excited about.

Figuring out how to watch the tournament, however, is another story. Multiple channels will broadcast the tournament’s 67 games (typically CBS, TBS, TNT and truTV). Don’t limit your tournament experience with expensive cable package add-ons, limited channels, data caps or a set number of devices that can watch at once. A streaming package from Lumos TV offers all these channels and more, all over ultra-fast fiber internet. Discover the all-new way to stream college hoops.

The Benefits of Streaming the College Basketball Tournament with Lumos TV

Unlike cable, streaming gives you total control of your viewing experience. Watch the games no matter where you are, on any compatible streaming device, in any room, at any time. Pause, rewind, restart and record the tournament so you can watch the games on your schedule and fast-forward through commercials. Plus, with the equally fast upload and download speeds fiber internet provides, your connection won’t lag, glitch or buffer during the buzzer-beating shot.

Watch on Multiple Devices At Once

The beginning of the tournament schedules multiple games at the same time, forcing cable viewers to choose between games. With Lumos TV, up to 3 devices can stream simultaneously, so you don’t miss a minute of any game. Enhance your experience even more with our streaming customization options that let you add two additional devices. That way, your entire household can keep up with how well (or poorly) their tournament bracket is doing in real time.

Restart, Pause, Rewind and Fast Forward to Never Miss the Action

Game times don’t always align with your busy schedule. Lumos TV gives you the flexibility to restart any game from the beginning and fast forward through the commercials to catch up to the live broadcast. Pause the game to refill the snack bowl or post a hot take on social media. If your favorite team makes a game-winning buzzer beater, you can rewind the greatest play of the game over and over to relive the moment.

Watch the Games on Your Schedule

If you want to watch an early afternoon game later that evening, you can record it and play it back when you’re ready with up to five hours of free Cloud DVR storage on Lumos TV. If your family loves to stream, you can add up to 300 hours of cloud storage to your plan.

Stream Anywhere on Any Device

Not going to be at home at tip-off? With the streaming app watchTVeverywhere, all you need is an internet signal to watch the game on the go on your phone, tablet or computer. Whether you’re riding in the car, on a flight, sitting in a coffee shop, or at work, Lumos TV goes with you (just don’t let your boss find out).

Enhance Your Tournament Experience with Smart Home Automation

For the best tournament experience, a smart TV and soundbar or surround sound system will make you feel like you’re courtside. With surround sound, cheers from the crowd are more dynamic, and insights and analysis from commentators are clearer, creating a more authentic experience. You can also integrate your smart home devices with your voice assistant platform to control the volume and channel with simple voice commands.
